via Daily Prompt: Ten


The first double digit number,

Which has under it’s belt, nine little numbers

Gives you the feel of achieving a milestone,

And often makes you wonder.


The number has a great significance,

Which gives you a decade of experience,

To handle events and occurrences,

With maturity and tolerance.


The abacus to every child,

The ten little fingers are your guide,

Counting from one to ten,

They have always been your friend.


The first ten makes a decade,

Ten decades makes a century,

Ten centuries makes a millennium,

Years of a wonderful compendium.
